Home made pita bread

After checking out many Youtube video's about how to make your own pita bread I found on I liked. had this great video and recipe. I even found her on facebook and be-friended her. I consulted her about make the dough in the bread maker, which worked great. Ava had fun helping me. I gave her, her own dough to work with.

Pita bread

Serves: 4
Difficulty: easy
Prep and Cook time: 4 hours

3 cups flour + 1 cup flour for kneading
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 cup warm water
1 packet yeast (7 grams or 1/4 oz)
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup warm water
olive oil

In a small bowl mix yeast, sugar and 1/2 cup warm water and let sit for 10-15 minutes. In a large bowl mix 3 cups flour with salt and make a well or whole in the middle. Slowly stir in yeast mix and 1 cup warm water until well combined. IN a large bowl add 1 tbs olive oil and spread all over to keep dough from sticking, place dough in oiled bowl, cover with a blanket, and let sit for 3 hours in a warm place. After 3 hours and dough has risen, add flour on to table surface and knead dough for 10 minutes, add flour to surface to keep it from sticking. Form dough into small balls and let sit in a plate for 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Roll our balls to 1/8 inch thick and place on flat cookie sheet or pan, cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until lightly brown and dough puffs up. If the dough does not puff up all the time, that is ok, you'll still have a pita pocket
